I need help and I think this group might be a good resource. My 17 yr
old daughter is planning to go to college next year and wants to go east (We
live in rural Utah) though she would go any where if the school was right. She
is looking for a small(1000 to 5000 ) college in a not too large town some
where between PA and ME. She wants to major in two dimensional art but also
wants a broad liberal arts education. She prefers not to go to an art school.
What follows is a list generated for her by her college councilor.All of you
know something about art and some of you might know what the art programs are
like at these schools.I would greatly appreciate any input. Do you see any
schools on this list to be avoided and why? Are there any that are must see
types? Are there other schools not on this list that she should check out?
Please e-mail me directly with any input.
Thanks in advance. Joe the Potter

How do you like that, my daughter is a Junior and she wants to go out West.
One of the BEST places for art is Rochester Institute of Technology in
upstate New York. It's located in a suburb of Rochester but not far from
the "Grand Canyon of the East'-- Letchworth Park. Has a good reputation in
the state of the art type of art. Students do alot of work with Kodak,
Xerox and Baush and Lomb--the major industries in this area.

We pass Bucknell every year to and from vacation in the Carolinas. My
daughter loves it there. It has one of the pretiest campuses in the area.
Not sure about their art program, however.
